between them and the obama administration. the contrast becomes part of their posturing. how are we going to approach foreign policy differently? the posture is that obama's foreign policy is lead from behind, i think mitt romney is really lean forward. we're trying to use our influence in the middle east to -- but really we're trying to use our influence in the region to get the outcomes we want in order to shape the policies that we want, in order to receive the outcomes that we want in the middle east. >> let's be honest, posturing is what we've got here. was his speech heavy on detail or light on detail? >> i'm stealing this from someone on twitter who said the difference between romney and obama on foreign policy is romney says speak louder but carry the same stick. sort of teddy roosevelt line. what's striking in the speech is overall the differences between romney and obama on foreign policy are not actually that great. it's about how do we deal with the syrian rebels and romney's more forthright but still hedging about whether we're going to arm them and where do you draw the red

along. "kelly's court." new charges levied against the obama administration regarding security decisions made in the weeks leading up to the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the benghazi embassy. >> we were moving into 9/11 and the white house wants to say we had no actionable intelligence. are you kidding me? where else in the world was our consulate bombed twice. now we have four dead americans. megyn: one day before congressional hearings on apparent security lapses in libya there are new allegations from a top republican lawmaker regarding what looks like an obama administration decision to scale back security in the weeks before the deadly terrorist attack on the consulate. joining me now, jason chaffetz. he just returned from a fact finding mission from libya. congressman, welcome back to the program. there is obviously a security lapse because we have four dead americans in libya. but this morning on fox you made news by suggesting you believe there was a coordinated effort went white house and the state department to scale down security in libya? on what do you base that? >> clearly the
, the bush administration and obama administration, we always knew that u.s. consulates and embassies are absolutely prime targets for terrorist attacks. we've seen this before in the bush administration, we had attacks in the consulate in karachi and pakistan in saudi arabia, in jeddah, in syria, and elsewhere throughout the region. so this is not entirely new. we know the threat is there. i think what we've seen in libya is, obviously a government which still had a real challenge in using its own forces to protect the limited u.s. presence and very legitimate questions now about the degree of security that was there at the embassy. from what i understand, there still was no long specific actual intelligence about this attack, but it's quite clear there was a threat in libya generally, a specific threat that we'd seen over the previous couple months in benghazi, and now obviously the congress and the executive branch have to look hard and see should that security have been heightened, but as you noted, the diplomatic security within the state department has long been a target of budg
call with president obama, his first words were you're welcome. how is the administration dealing with this? do they see it the same way? >> reporter: he went into this happy to be able to defend the honor of the white house and this administration and will probably come out of it feeling he did that. and the administration and the campaign were thrild with the performance last night for the very reasons ron outlined. especially because biden forcefully made the case that the democratic base wanted to hear about the president's economic message. essentially, you know, many democrats were so disappointed after the president's performance last week. somebody needed to come out and reenergize them. and so that's what the vice president was aabble to do. now it's up to the president to see if he can pick it up from there next week, don. >> don, real quick, still the hole in the donut, like obama last week, as strong as biden was, almost nothing about what a second term, second obama term would bring, particularly on the economy. big missing piece. tough on the republican choice, tough
this administration. we don't know the answer to that. look, president bush, president obama, and a president romney would all say we will not allow iran to acquire the nuclear know how basically to produce weapons. biden was saying clearly, look, it's not as bad as it seems, they don't have a weapon to mount this on. >> one point ryan seemed to agree with that saying we have more time. >> it's not clear to me where the real difference is in the policy. >> yep. >> rhetoric is fine. one of the challenge for republicans right now post the bush era if you're saying that basically the democrats are soft on foreign policy, what is the difference between that and the projection of american power under the bush era where you invaded other countries and the like? is there some middle ground. if there is i don't know what that is. we're in the rhetorical stage after neo conservative sounding ticket -- >> and biden made -- >> being tougher is not a policy. >> biden made a virtue out of that for his base saying would you go to a war? would you start another war? and that is very resonate with democratic base a
a romney administration would run america. i do think that president obama is going to come back with a very different strategy. i think his advisors have probably told him that he needs to put more energy into this. he may pursue a strategy of trying to fire up his base, i don't think that's what he needs to do to win undecided voters. part of me kind of hopes he does it. >> fascinating night. i'm sure we will all talk again next week. my money is on an obama fight back but will it be enough? i'm not convinced. i thought he was very lackluster the other night. he has to really raise the game pretty substantially. thank you to my all-star panel. we'll be back next with more politics and much more with joe walsh from the eagles. a lot to say about the race and life in the fast lane. ♪ i gave birth to my daughter on may 18th, five days later, i had a massive heart attack. bayer aspirin was the first thing the emts gave me. now, i'm on a bayer aspirin regimen.
